Meet Cindy

Workforce Challenge

When Cindy was laid off from her job at a state university, she came to Michigan Works! in Alpena for assistance in finding a new job.

Workforce Solution

Cindy was in the Alpena office often and Michigan Works! Talent Specialist Barb assisted her with faxed and online job applications. Barb also provided encouragement and emailed Cindy job postings often.
Cindy accepted a part-time job with MSU Extension, then shortly after, a full-time position with Stratford Group, before she ended up being called back to the university.

Outcomes & Benefits

She is currently a Purchasing Service Clerk at the university with good pay and state benefits. Cindy says, “I was laid off for six months. The staff and resources available to me at the Michigan Works! office were such a wonderful help to me. Barb went above and beyond to assist me with procuring employment.”
